Snead State, Ingram State Partner to Benefit Prison Education
Snead State Community College recently donated over 4,000 books to Ingram State Technical College to use with the statewide prison education program. Snead State’s Maintenance Department as well as student-athletes with the Baseball Team, Women’s Basketball Team and Cheerleaders assisted Ingram representatives in loading the books for transport on Tuesday, Sept. 26.

Snead State Community College partnered with Ingram State Technical College to contribute to statewide prison education efforts.

On Tuesday, Sept. 26, Ingram State parked a truck in front of the Story Administration Building at Snead State. Joining representatives from Ingram, the Snead State Maintenance Department and student-athletes with the Baseball Team, the Women’s Basketball Team and the Cheerleaders moved boxes of library books from Snead State’s library to fill the truck.

“As we continue to improve our student experience by transitioning to a complete virtual library, we donated over 4,000 books to Ingram’s prison education program,” said Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore. “The books will be used in prison libraries across the state. We are proud to partner with our sister college and President Annette Funderburk in this effort.”

The decision to move to an entirely online library came after a recommendation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. The partnership with Ingram provided an opportunity to repurpose the library books while supporting a program with another college within the Alabama Community College System.
